  • Amazing views, spectacular condo!

    "This is an amazing property. The first thing to mention is the stunning ocean views from the family room and each of the three bedrooms. The location will never disappoint. The condo was well equipped and the owners Kerwin and Lisa were very responsive when setting up the reservations and answered all questions. There is a local manager Willy who will help with arranging any tours you want to enjoy, such as fishing etc. We caught fish one day (4 Spanish Mackerel) and brought it to a local restaurant (La Luna) for their preparation. They made ceviche with it and also grilled the rest. It was the best meal we had there. Just amazing and La Luna has a great location with views. There was plenty of fish left which we prepared in the condo for tacos the next evening. We had a party of eight and the condo was plenty big for us all. The only problem we had was water pressure at times, but whenever we reported it, it was fixed after a few minutes. I would easily stay here again as it is one of the most beautiful locations for a hotel I ever stayed at. Oh and concerning wildlife, we saw a couple monkeys and sloths near the hotel and during our 5 minute walk downhill to the local beach. It was a great little beach, but the water wasn't too clear for snorkeling, although I saw some fish near the rocks, but as mentioned clarity is lacking there. Take a trip 30 mins south to Dominical and head inland to the Nauyaca waterfalls. You can hike in or take horseback. It is worth it. Horseback ride is only $70 US per person and includes a breakfast and lunch midway in both directions. Horses were very nice and well kept. We didn't see too much wildlife on that trip, but if you head into Manuel Antonio State Park, you will see plenty there. We saw 3 monkey types, a coati, iquanas, peccary, vine snake and pesky raccoons that will snatch your food from your bags right next to you. This time of year (with locals on vacation too) the park is very busy and be prepared to be around some crowds. This place will not disappoint! Last comment, the restaurant at the hotel is good, but is a bit pricey. Better options are out and about nearby concerning pricing."

  • you cant beat this place, reasonably priced, best location, spectacular view, wifi, mini kitchen

    "This was our second stay at the small penthouse owned by Marc. Once again, we loved it very much!!! My husband and I stayed here for about a week this time at the end of July and beginning of August. I had forgotten about how nice the view was. And then, there was the open air shower and the monkeys we got to see from our very large balcony. I noticed another guest's review that said something about the wifi internet not working and having a problem with the a/c. We didn't have any issues with the Internet or the A/c. Our wifi internet worked well. We were even able to call back home, via whatsapp; and the a/c was nice and cold. We actually noticed that it was a new unit. We remembered the old unit from last year. Well, as I said before, this was our return trip to this small penthouse. As before, the employees were very nice. They helped us with our luggage and did a quick check-in for us. Their level of attention exceeded our expectations. We like having our laundry done. The maid, helped us with that. She was shy but efficient and nice. She remembered us from last year. She did our laundry for $10 US dollars, folded it and returned it back to us on the same day. We drove from San Jose, so our complimentary parking spot at Marc's penthouse is right next door to the condo, at the upper level; which was very convenient. Security is 100% vigilant. Parking is very secure. We walked to the beach a couple of times, usually right after breakfast. It was about 20 minutes to the beach. You can take the bus or a cab if you prefer, but we were in for the nice walk. It was very enjoyable. We noticed they opened a small super market, clothing store, yoga studio, bank and ATM next door to the complex; a huge plus for the area. I don't think you can get a better place around for this price. We liked the new full size fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. It was nice walking next door to the grocery store, fill up our fridge with edibles and use the microwave on rainy days. Best location and view for sure. This is by far the best area of town, centrally located and where the best hangout spots are, including restaurants and night life. You are at one of the highest elevations in all of Manuel Antonio, so the view is spectacular all around you. You don't even need a car here. Marc, the owner, is a nice and friendly guy and responds very quickly. Thank you once again Marc. I hope I get to back next year for my third trip."

  • Beautiful home in Manuel Antonio away from it all

    "My wife, eight year old son and I stayed at Casa Gina from 3/25-3/31/2016 and it is a wonderful home. Situated atop a high hill in a nice gated community you feel secluded, but you're only 2 minutes away from restaurants, sights and beaches. The home is well appointed, very clean and large enough to accommodate 6 very comfortably. You have all the comforts of home with washer/dryer, full kitchen with dishwasher, BBQ, pool, safe and alarm. They have an always hot hot water system that some complained about, and at first we agreed until we figured out to keep the handles about middle and the water will stay a pretty constant warm...otherwise you will cycle between extreme heat and then cold water. My one complaint is the wifi, it is very slow and only allows for checking email, sending text messages (no pictures in those) and maybe doing some light web browsing, but don't expect pages to load quickly. Also, don't expect to stream anything either, it was enough for what we needed, but had hoped for a slightly faster connection.You can expect to see sloths, monkeys, iguanas and lots of birds in the back yard, which was nice when we'd relax at the pool. Tip, if you are going to do any tours of any kind, they will usually pick you up right from the house or at least the front gate of the community saving you from having to find places there, which is not always easy since many streets don't have signs in CR. Take the ATV tour to Rainmaker, its a great area and has a local brewery there serving fantastic beer. Gary and Gina were very easy to work with and Jeannette and Carlos (the local contacts in Costa Rica) were great. We would definitely go back again and recommend this place to anyone!!"

  • We loved Jungle Creek!

    "Our family of four really enjoyed our stay in the 2 bedroom Dos Palmas Villa. Paula was really helpful with arranging an itinerary and booking activities before we arrived. She and Clark were not home during our stay, but Ellie and her husband were staying on the property. Ellie was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We enjoyed horseback riding with Rancho Tipica don Juan, ziplining with Canopy Safari, and a guided tour of the national park with Pablo. The typical Costa Rican lunches with the horseback riding and ziplining tours were very good. We also enjoyed eating dinners out in Manuel Antonio at El Wagon, Aqua Azul, and Baja Roja. We made breakfast in our condo every morning and the kitchen had everything we needed. Our boys loved playing in the little pool at the resort and cooled off in it every afternoon. Thank you for a great stay!"
